Angelina Jolie says she'd marry Brad Pitt if their kids asked -- but leave Shiloh's style alone

Angelina-jolie-salt We wouldn't want an encounter in a dark alley with Angelina Jolie's new spy character, Evelyn Salt, but it sounds like the actress is even tougher as a mother of six. 

As Jolie did rampant promotion for her new flick, "Salt," this weekend, a Reuters reporter inquired about her and Brad Pitt's little girl Shiloh -- whose penchant for tomboy clothes has caught the attention of many a blogger. 

"I think she [Shiloh] is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting," Jolie said.

We can only hope this was said with an eyebrow arched and lips judgmentally pouting. 

"Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth," she added.

Jolie and Pitt would know a thing or two about raising children -- they have six, including little Shiloh. 

In an interview with Cynthia McFadden for ABC News, Jolie broached the topic of marriage by basically saying she and Pitt will walk down no aisle unless the kids want them to. 

"I think it'd be hard to say no to the kids," Jolie said, talking about the day they might ask why Mommy and Daddy don't have matching rings.

But for now? "They're not asking."

You're NOTHING but a homewrecker!

Go Angelina...it's really no one else's business how you raise your kids....Shiloh seems sweet, and every little girl goes through a tomboy stage....keep your head held high, because you deserve respect, especially from mean spirited critics and ego driven exes!

tell angelina jolie and brad pitt to stop doing it, because they are cousins in real life if you check their in lau lineage ;0


This women is full of lies and craziness.

She's the coolest lady in the world. And Shiloh's style is perfect.

I think brad would marry jennifer again before committing to this physco, he only with her because he is stuck now

And really, why would those little kids really care if her ring matches his, they dont even know what that means!LOL. She is going to use the kids to get him to marry her, she knows thats why he staying with her now.

And angelina does not deserve respect, she is a home wrecker and will always have that name under her belt

I hope the kids will ask them to get married soon. That would be amazing!

Go ahead Joly,every person has its own life. Takes special care for childern but not in the cost of your own life.

Goodness. Angelina certainly draws the pitchforkers out of the woodwork. Calls to mind the legendary attacks on Ingrid Bergman by other fringe elements.

Strange and beautiful, but mom material? Don't think so. Brad is probably the only responsible care giver in the equation. In fact, I think Brad decided to be with Jolie because she had a young son and he wanted children. Just a hunch...

Angelina is a true inspiration...instead of spending millions on her hair, she dotes on her kids...she's got way more class than to show up in a bikini every two weeks without her latest leading man drolling over nothing...there are many fans who know Angie's the best thing around!

Jolie has no idea how to raise children. Instead, she uses them. They are only little children, but they work from day one - bringing millions to mommy dearest. She sells their pictures to mags and pimps them on a daily basis. Little moneymakers they are.

" ...I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting..."
Wht the hell does this mean,lol. Her kids ar "somebody" and they want/not want to be "something". Michael phelps had adhd and his mom put him in the pool for tht reason whn she could hav gotten therapy for her son. Tht wud be easy instead of a kid workin his butt out to learn ALL the strokes and train to be the fastest swimmer. Tht's just too much physcial hardship for a kid. But did phelps wnted to b.cum a swimmer, or just have fun growin up w.o so much responsibilities tht cums in the territory of being a great athlete. His mom his behind him evrytime,sounds like evry mom puts their kids into a regime of sorts. These kinds of statements is dumb,find out what your kids are and encourage thm to do something abt instead of lookin at the mirror.
